i feel he could be a handy player for us he certainly has a bit of experience and a decent scoring record. He is also set to be released by sunderland so could come on a free. also could play well on our right wing

a decent scoring record

Really?! A goal every 3 games, most of which are for Cork City?

Ignoring his heady days in the Irish League, it's a goal every 5 games.

Conversely looking at his most recent season he had a good time at Hartlepool. Trouble is would he make the step up the divisions against better quality defenders and a faster pace?

This gets mentioned every season but when you consider how well Leicester, Swansea, Bristol etc. have coped in this division I think it's fair to assume the step up is not that big of one. I'd take the gamble on League One players if it means the risk of signing a player with the raw talent that Ryan Jarvis demonstrated at that level.

His time with Sunderland, and more recently Blackpool, would suggest no

Very true Stinky, but I would be interested in knowing how fast he is and is he left footed or right ????
